There have been 63 applications requested for home repairs pursuant to the Williamson Home Rehabilitation Grant. Eighteen applications are now being processed. Three homes are currently under construction and one home has been completed.  $137,000 has been awarded for home improvements in 2009. There is no ending date for the program.  More funding is available. For more information please contact Dee Frey at 589-8211 or via email at dfrey@pathstone.org.

Last year the Town of Williamson was awarded a grant for $40,000 to conduct a trails development study along Route 104. This is a joint venture with the Towns of Webster, Ontario, Williamson and Sodus. The purpose of the study is to identify suitable areas for the development of a multi-use trail.   Marion was awarded $50,000 to develop trail routes between Marion and Pultneyville.

Request for proposals for consultants to guide this project were advertised in November. Nine proposals have been received. The sponsoring towns in conjunction with the Genesee Transportation Council will select the consultant soon.

A steering committee will be appointed to direct the project. If you are interested in being on the steering committee, please contact me at 589-2038 or via email at wmsonsupv@rochester.rr.com.

The Williamson Garden Club is now planning activities for 2010 which include Master Gardener lectures, garden tours and a creative summer project. There will be a dedication during Apple Blossom Festival week for the “Green Space” on Main Street located next to King’s Auto Sales. If you are interested in joining the garden club or learning more about upcoming events visit grow-thewilliamsongardenclub.blogspot.com/.  You can also contact Garden Club President Eric Herriman at 524-4204 or grow14589@gmail.com.

This month Town Justice Jim Peters and myself were members of a panel at the Wayne-Finger Lakes Board of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES) Technical Career Center in which students in the “New Vision:Medical Careers” program made presentations on policy issues regarding  health care.   Two of the students – Chelsea Gates and Meghan Vancour - were Williamson students and did very well.

The Public Hearing for the proposed Comprehensive Plan is on Tuesday, February 23, 2010, at 7:30 p.m. at the Williamson Town Complex. A copy of the plan is posted on the Town’s website http://town.williamson.ny.us. and a copy is available at the Williamson Free Public Library.  There will be a presentation by the consultant – Bergmann Associates – at the hearing followed by a period for public comment. Attendance by the public is encouraged as the Plan, once adopted by the Town Board, will serve as the guide for future growth of our town over the next 10 years.
